On Monday, the mayor of Birmingham stopped short of explicitly endorsing the union drive at Amazon’s warehouse in nearby Bessemer, Alabama, but said he supports whatever outcome workers choose for themselves. Thousands of Birmingham residents work at the Bessemer warehouse, according to the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU). 

“I think if employees want to unionize, they should have that right,” Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said, after meeting in private with Amazon warehouse workers.
